At Girlpages™ Network we are a sisterhood of women who want to support women owned businesses. In order to do this we need to know you are a 'woman owned' business and distinguish you by a 'girl status' icon and/or acronym. If you'd like to further distinguish your business to your life style as well, we have an icon for that, but it is not necessary. Because Girlpages appeals to lesbians it is beneficial to distinguish that part of your business if it applies.
If you own a business, you can proudly sport your 'girl status' on your door, or website, by just displaying our icon that applies.
There are thousands of companies who are looking to fulfill their procurement goals with WOO, LOO businesses.
Girlpages is owned by Playback.net, a Certified WOO, who participated in this program with the government. These programs don't really support smaller contracts. We believe creating a support system for women in business will bring opportunity to these WOO businesses in addition to other procurement opportunities. Of course to be part of these diversity programs there is a more rigorous certification and proof process that in the end doesn't seem to really pay off. For instance, most of the contract opportunities are over kill. Contracts ranging from $100k to millions are the average opportunities. Where a $5,000, $10,000 $50,000+ contract is a great stimulus for a small business. I have been in business 28 years and know all the ins & outs of this program, including competing for contracts. All that is time consuming. In most cases you end up spending more time competing writing proposals then actually working.
So we created our own diversity procurement program to give real help to small women owned businesses.
Mixing WREPs with WOO helps bring attention to women WREPs in high positions to mix with WOOs. We don't expect anyone to use these businesses, we just ask to give them a chance to show what they can provide.
Please look at our growing directory, if you are a woman business owner send us your square ad and we will inter-grade you into our system.
All ADs are paid ADs. If you are a "WOO or LOO" Girlpages is granting you one stimulus ad.

Girl Status: WREP or LREP
If you are a lesbian, you do not have to advertise you are, that is just a option.
